Embutido (meat loaf style)


Joymee Jucar – David Thompson Grade 11 Student

Embutido is a Filipino style of meatloaf. This dish is one of my favorite Filipino food, and whenever my grandmother cook this dish, I can finish the whole wrap in one single meal alone. I usually help her preparing this recipe especially the portion of wrapping the embutido with aluminum foil. You can serve this as a cold cut or you can even fry it after steaming. Do whatever you want but don’t forget to put the ketchup on the side. The ingredients are really simple. I am sure that you can prepare this recipe on your first attempt. Try this delicious Embutido recipe and let me know what you think.
